The presentation will identify the most common errors that structural engineers make when performing seismic design and calculations. The presentation will then demonstrate the proper application of Codes and Standards so as to avoid errors and misapplications. The presentation will be based upon IBC 2012, ASCE 7-10, AISC 360-10, AISC 341-10, ACI 318-11 (including Chapter 21 and Appendix D) and other Standards. Topics related to common errors will include:
Seismic Design Category, Importance Factor, Load Path, R Factor, Irregularities, Overstrength, Redundancy, Vertical Seismic Effect, Allowable Stress Design, Orthogonal Effects, Effective Seismic Weight, Distribution of Base Shear Over Height, Modal Response Spectrum Analysis, Accidental Torsion, Drift, Diaphragms, Non-Structural Components, as well as other items.
